The Falcons grabbed an unbelievable 32 offensive rebounds on the day and held a 60-47 advantage on the glass. The Falcons put up 101 points despite shooting just 34 percent from the field thanks in part to the effort on the offensive boards.

Wilkins scored eight of her 11 in the final 10 minutes of the contest and the Falcons connected on five 3-pointers in the fourth quarter.
